What people say about Real Dietitian


"As a professional living in a rural area, my access to a dietitian is very limited. Having my Real Dietitian call me during my lunch break was perfect and helped make changes in my diet to control my diabetes." 

- Linda P

"I loved speaking with my Real Dietitian because he took a genuine interest in my personal health and situation. He supported me with simple yet practical tips and tricks to help me feel healthy and energized once again."

- Margaret S,

"My mother-in-law was recently diagnosed with stage 3 renal disease. After doing a bit of research, I discovered that dietary modifications could delay the progression of her disease. Since there weren't any renal dietitians in her area, I was happy to discover Real Dietitian. We met with our RD over the phone a received a high quality counseling session from the comfort of home, Our Real Dietitian did an excellent job of presenting the information in a way that was easy for the lay person to understand, and also sent over some written materials by email as follow-up. 

The service is unique and an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to meet with a dietitian to improve their health with proper nutrition. I would highly recommend this convenient and high quality service."
